Basic methods of stress analysis and design of reinforced concrete elements subjected to bending, shear, combined bending and axial loads.

This course is an introduction to the analysis of structural systems.  The following areas are covered: types of structural elements and systems; determination of dead, live, and environmental loads; statically determinate structures, trusses, beams, and frames; internal loading developed in structural members; computation of deflections; analysis of statically indeterminate structures by the force method.

Numerical and statistical methods applied in the solution of Civil Engineering problems using computers.

The course will cover the nature of wind-related to wind-structure interaction and design loads for extreme winds, tornadoes, and hurricanes.
